1 Daniel Agricola (1490-1540). Printed Leaf from: Passio Domini Nostri Jesu Christi....
Basel: Michael Furter, 1513 Used: Very Good 
Single quarto leaf, Folio XX (out of XXVI, [DD4]). 202 x 151 mm. 8 x 5 7/8 inches. Single column of text printed in a larger type face in the center of the page, containing sequential biblical verses from the four gospels; commentary, by Agricola, printed in two columns in smaller type surrounding the gospel narrative, 50 lines to a column, both printed in a rounded Gothic face, 1 wood cut illustration with scenes from the passion of Christ (crucifixion) after illustrations by Urs Graf. Printed on rag paper with only minor foxing or toning. Very Good. The Commentary of Agricola, a preacher and mendicant from Basel, was first published as an appendix to William of Auvergne's Postilla... Super Epistolas et Evangelia, with woodcuts by Urs Graf, Basel: Adam Petrus, 1509. The woodcut found on this leaf, also printed in Basel, is an exact copy of Graf's original, save for Graf's woodcut initials (UG), in the lower right corner of the original, which was left out of this reproduction.
